I've gotten through a full shell removal, changed axles, new floor and put shell back on.
Putting Bondo on floor seams now.
These are the tools that I have used

- Small flat pry bar (priceless) and hammer
- 1 2-ton bottle jack
- scissor jack from my car
- Large flat and large phillips screw drivers
- 4" angle grinder
- 7 1/4" Skil saw
-- wood blade and steel cutting blade
- Drill (w/cord)
-- good number of (broken) titanium drill bits for steel
-- wood drill bits
- 1 set of steel adjustable saw horses from lowes
- Plenty of cinder blocks and 2x6 blocks
- Hand powered rivet gun from VTS
- Pex crimping tool set from Lowes
- Screwdriver looking test light with lead

Only other tool that I think that I will need to use is a pneumatic rivet gun setup for buck riveting.
